35 years anniversary!

The Guardian Legend celebrating 35 years today. Great multi-genre NES/Famicom game. Explore the overworld in Legend of Zelda like style and then transform into fighter jet and blast through corridors in style of Zanac.

Was crazy fun back then. Finding new weapon and trying and then upgrading and trying again was so interesting!

Unfortunately the game did not had success it deserved. Probably due to bad marketing. So there was no sequel developed by Compile. There is a fan made sequel for windows only – Shadow of Naju. Worth to try.

Underneath the map

Long ago I did show little bit of the area underneath the map. That area is not random unlike all the other directions out of the map.

Here is some footage of that. I recommend watch it on youtube and click timecodes, where I picked some highlights. Mostly nothing interesting happens there 🙂

The switch of the area types happens only when you go in and out of portal doors. That would require too much time to try test every cell to figure out if the area types match the main map. That also means, if you walk into other area without entering a door then it will not change and stay the same.

Clawbot color upgrade

A small color upgrade of the Clawbot sprite. Looks great. The author is AndroidArts you might saw his concept art for The Guardian Legend. If you didn’t you better check it out: https://androidarts.com/tgl/guardianlegend.htm

He also gave the front talons some chainsaw teeth to make them a bit more aggressive looking.

The new sprite got more depth. And it looks great. Nothing was changed much except the coloring. The original tweet is here: https://twitter.com/AndroidArts/status/1530184543591858182

Guardian Legend OST by soejima1000

A really good played Guardian Legend OST by soejima1000

All the songs in one video. Played on guitar with also a recorded guitars background. Worth a listen.

I added the song to the music section as an audiofile, but it has 128kbps quality, as it is the quality the video was uploaded.
